Shreveport drops daily section, weekly TV guide

Foreshadowing similar cuts at other newspapers, The Times of Shreveport, La., today switched to a three-section newspaper, and stopped publishing anonymous comments and blogs as a regular print feature, Executive Editor Alan English told readers in a new column. “While our diverse local economy, bolstered by oil and gas, helps insulate us, we are not immune to the impact of the financial meltdown and economic repercussions now showing on our Main Street,” he said. “By the end of the year, the Times will have reduced its work force and expenses by 6%.”
